SS's BM is really starting to grate my nerves. When DH picked up SS on Friday, BM was obviously hinting at the fact she doesn't know how she's going to buy school supplies and clothes. BM's DH lost his job in February so they're struggling financially. We were already planning on taking SS and my 2 kids school clothes shopping on Saturday (something we have done since they all started school) and we decided just to go get supplies too. We got everything on everyone's list and new backpacks and lunch boxes. So all 3 kids should be set. So DH drops SS back off yesterday and, of course being 8, SS was excited to show BM what all he got. Well BM just goes off on DH, saying he wasn't allowed to take him to get that stuff, it's her job. She said she's taking it all back and she wanted the receipts. What is she supposed to tell her other son when she can't get him all this new stuff. DH asked her what she wanted then when she mentioned she didn't have the money. She admitted she just wanted him to give her money so she could take him. I just don't know what to do anymore. We tried to help her out at ss's birthday in April and that backfired and now this. We make decent money and DH is going to do whatever needs to be done to see that his kid's needs are met. SS shouldn't do without when he has two separate families to take care of him.
